The Whole ArmoUr of God
Eph 6:10 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power.
Eph 6:11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil's schemes.
Eph 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.
Eph 6:13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand.
Eph 6:14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place,
Eph 6:15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace.
Eph 6:16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one.
Eph 6:17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.
Eph 6:18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the saints.
Eph 6:19 Pray also for me, that whenever I open my mouth, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel,
Eph 6:20 for which I am an ambassador in chains. Pray that I may declare it fearlessly, as I should.
The Lord woke me up with this, he showed me our helmets and our armour.
Yes my child you wrestle against principalities and powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this present age and against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places, but I have equipped you to withstand this. Keep your armour intact, keep it impenetrable, you will overcome the evil that the enemy and his minions wants to bring your way, for no weapon formed against you will prosper, it just can’t prosper because I have gone before you and I have overcome the world .
I am the way the truth and the life, keep your belt of truth on for the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth. He will reveal the truth to you, keep your eyes on me. I want to reveal more and more to you, to reveal the innermost secrets of my heart to you, come closer, come away with me, enter the secret place with me. Now make sure your breast plate of righteousness is in place, by my blood your sins are washed away and you have been made righteous in the eyes of my Father, for it is in my righteousness that you stand, but I want you to be holy for I am holy, guard your tongue, guard your mind, guard your actions, people ought to see me living in you, let your light shine in the world of men. Remember to that your heart is under this breastplate of protection, keep your heart surrendered to me. I love you so much. You are the apple of my eye, my precious possession, yes my child, you are mine, you belong to me. Do you know that my Father has gifted you to me?
Now take a look at your feet I have shod them with gospel sandals, sandals that will never wear out as you take the message to the people you meet, I want you to love them like I love them, I gave my life for them, I will show you my heart for them, go and find my sheep who have gone astray and have yet to come home. I want them to be part of my bride. Remember dear one I have sent you. Can you imagine the joy that there is for us in heaven when even one of those little ones comes home to me. They may be young, they may be old but there is so much rejoicing when a sinner repents and comes home to me. So love them like I love them for I so surely do care, and you long after my heart. I want them to know How I love them, how Father loves them, how the Holy Spirit will bring joy and peace into their lives, hope and a knowledge of eternal security.
Look at your shield, it is massive and thick, when held in front of you it will deflect every arrow, nothing can touch you, it is so strong that nothing not even bullets or explosives will penetrate it, infact even the strongest arrows and explosives will b extinguished. I have given you this shield of faith, I have gifted you with faith, keep your shield of faith up before you, exercise faith. By faith you will deserve a place amongst the heroes of faith. By faith you will see signs, wonders and miracles happening today, greater than you have ever seen before, the blind will see, the deaf will hear, the lame will walk, creative miracles will take place, even the dead will be raised for I am, I am- yesterday, today and forever the same. You will see a marvellous harvest of souls, keep humble, because this is not of you and your deeds, this is what I will do through you. I have chosen you for such a time as this.
Now listen carefully to what I have to say to you. I have placed your helmet of salvation on your head for many reasons. It is by grace that you have been saved, because it pleased me to give my life, shed my blood on the cross for you, it is because of grace you know sins forgiven. My blood has washed away all of your sins – my grace has saved you. Saved means to be saved, healed and delivered in both the Hebrew and the Greek. English does not translate this so well, so by grace you are set free from sin, by grace you can now walk in freedom and health for that is what I have designed for you. And this helmet of salvation is my protection for you, I am transforming your mind until your mind is so perfectly aligned with mine, I refresh and renew that mind constantly, I guard that mind. I am imparting to you my wisdom, my knowledge. You will know my heart, my mind, my thoughts and you will love as I love, care as I care, see what I see and hear my voice, oh so clearly. Stay close to me my dear one. All fear is under the blood, under grace, you need not live in fear, I have given you a sound mind, cast down the nonsense thoughts that can fill your imagination, fix your mind on things that are of me. You are caught up in the heavenly places with me. So I am transforming your mind and your heart until they become as mine. I live in you, the fullness of the Godhead indwells you – that is Father, Son and Holy Spirit and we are sanctifying you, transforming you, you are a new creation- the old has gone. Your helmet offers you such protection and guards your thoughts, your thoughts will be my thoughts. Remember I am the head of the church, I will direct your thoughts my friend, my brother, my sister, my bride, I will lead you on the way that you have to go.
Now take up the Sword of the Spirit – stay strong in the Word, read my Word, study my Word, apply it to yourself, take hold of the promises I have made within the Word. Allow the Holy Spirit to guide you and enlighten you as you delve deeper into my Word. I want to speak to you through my Word. Are you ready to listen? My Word is a lamp unto your feet- I will direct your thoughts. You need to be strong in the Word and in the Spirit- marry the two and you my beloved one are going to be fruitful for my Kingdom. Keep your armour intact.
Now remember to be effective in my Kingdom and to keep your amour intact you need to be a prayer warrior. When my people learn to pray effectively, the rest starts to fall into place , I have asked you to humble yourself and pray. Pray in your spiritual language, bring your petitions before me in English and in tongues, come to me with a heart of praise , intercede for the saints, intercede for your nation, bring before me that which I lay on your heart. I need watchmen on the wall of your nation , be alert and constant in prayer. Pray that your mouth will be filled with words that I give you to say, spoken in boldness. Pray for all who speak my Word, proclaim the Gospel, pray for those who are persecuted for my Name’s sake. Pray that the full truth of the glorious gospel will go forth boldly proclaimed. Pray for help to proclaim the gospel message yourself wherever I have placed you, be prepared to go where I send you. Prophecy life into the people, prophecy life into your nation, these dry bones will live.
